  • Description

    WEST GERMANY'S NEW COMMUNIST PARTY TODAY (SATURDAY) HELD A FOUNDATION CONGRESS IN DORTMUND TO ARRANGE ALLIANCES AND PREPARE PLANS FOR CONTESTING THE NEXT ELECTIONS IN 1969. THE CONGRESS CAME LESS THAN A WEEK AFTER THE PARTY'S FIRST MEETING, AFTER 12 YEARS OF BEING OUTLAWED. THE RE-CONSTITUTED PARTY WAS FORMED A MONTH AGO.

    THE CONGRESS WAS ADDRESSED BY THE PARTY SECRETARY, DR. HANS BRENDER.

    THE NEW PARTY HAS BEEN FORMED AS THE "GERMAN COMMUNIST PARTY", IN CONTRAST WITH THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF GERMANY", OUTLAWED IN 1956 AS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND ANTI-DEMOCRATIC. APART FROM THE CHANGE IN NAME, THE NEW PARTY HAS TAKEN THE PRECAUTION OF STRESSING THAT IT WILL FUNCTION WITHIN THE CONSTITUTION.

    IT HAS DECLARED ITS AIM OF CHANGING THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC FACE OF THE COUNTRY.
